Llanelli, who had earlier lost 22-13 in Cardiff, stopped the Blue and Blacks from completing the double by edging them out 13-11 at Stradey Park in the Under-21's Premier Division.
Nick Macleod, who recently made his senior debut against Cambridge University, kicked the only points of the first-half with a penalty that gave Cardiff the lead at 3-0.
Llanelli came back into the match when acting captain Aled Gravell scored a try and he was soon followed over the line by prop forward Phil John with fly half Phil Fisher kicking a penalty goal.
At 13-3, Cardiff retaliated with a try by wing Geraint Williams and a second penalty by Macleod, but the latter's conversion attempt that would have provided the equalising points went wide.
Llanelli turned out their Academy 17-year-olds against Bath at Stradey Park and pulled off an excellent 18-0 win.

In the second spell, centre Aled Thomas raced in for the second Scarlet try and a smart pass by fly half Roger Davies put Williams away for the final score.
